The 2023 Young Carers Scholarship Program is now open!
Carers Victoria’s Young Carers Scholarship program gives young carers attending secondary school the opportunity to be acknowledged for their contributions to their family and the community and to participate in school or community-based activities that enhance their skills, educational achievement and abilities, or that help them to participate more fully in their community.
Scholarships of up to $500 are awarded to successful applicants.

Who can apply
Young Carers Scholarships are open to secondary school students who live or go to school in Victoria and provide care and support to a family member with a disability, mental illness, chronic health issue or an older person with care needs.
Please note the number of scholarships awarded is dependent on the amount of scholarship applications received. Those who receive a Young Carer Bursary in that year will not be eligible.
